COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nasce da un “pensiero perverso” di Teo e da anni di ricerca. Una birra ad alta fermentazione che ha subito un processo di macro ossidazione e una maturazione in botti di rovere che le donano profumi di datteri, caramello e un delicato ricordo di legno. Al bicchiere si presenta priva di gasatura e schiuma con note di colore bruno con riflessi ramati

Xyauyù Barrel is the result of a “wicked idea” of Teo’s and years of research. It is a top-fermented beer which has gone through macrooxidation and has been aged in oak rum barrels to give it scents of dates, caramel and a delicate wooden note. When poured, it has no head and no gas; it has a dark color with copper nuances.

KyotoLefty (9982) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 1, 2017
Bottle pour at Baladin Bologna. Huge caramel and toffee nose, creme caramel. Again huge caramel cream and vanilla in the flavor. Slightly cloying and candy-like, at least compared to the Fume. Very soft, awesome body, though a bit more sugary. Caramel apples. Good but too sweet. Less balanced. This is a great beer, but the Fume was just so much more exquisitely balanced.

Zdecydowanie najlepsze BW jakie miałem przyjemność pić. Barwa bardzo ciemno-herbaciana, wysycenie praktycznie zerowe, piwo mocno oblepia szkło. W zapachu rodzynki, miód pitny, figi, delikatny rum, wiśnie i palony cukier. W smaku... ileż tu się dzieje... Znowu dużo miodu pitnego i rodzynek, fajna słodyczka, karmel i trochę waniliowej krówki, na drugim planie gra wanilia i syrop klonowy. Alkohol trochę wyczuwalny ale zupełnie w niczym nie przeszkadza. Piłem je cztery razy po kapkę przez miesiąc przy dobrze zakorkowanej butelce (korek który wypompowuje powietrze). Cały czas było wyborne.

dropi6 (316) - POLAND - FEB 27, 2017
Vintage 2010. Bottle @ Dobry Zbeer. Brown, little hazy, no head of course. Insane aroma: barrel, rum, cherry, toast, vanilla, biscuits, almonds, figs, wood. Inceredibly oily, flat. Long pleasant aftertaste. Alcohol perfectly warming throat. Little bit worse than fume, but still nearly perfect barley wine.

tmrmwel (1974) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2017
Bottle, vintage 2011. Pours clear dark maroon, with no head at all. Aroma is dark fruits with raisins and prunes, tobacco and wooden barrels. Medium to creamy body, with no carbonation whatsoever. Flavour is dark fruits with rum raisins, prunes and notes of cherries, leather, raw cocoa and wooden barrels. Close to a missing link between sherry and madeira wine. Incredibly smooth and complex, yet balanced and drinkable. Brilliant!

DwarfeD (3276) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2017
Sample from bottle at Uiltje bar. Very dark brown with no head. Thick complex body with almost no carbonation. Very sweet with subtle bitter tones. Plums, raisin, caramel, sugar and spices. Very ’port’-ish brew, good!

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Zerowe wysycenie, masa karmelu, fig, suszonych owoców i drewna. Znakomite piwo.

500ml bottle from boxbeers,com / Vintage 2011

Mahongy colour with no head. Overdone fruits, caramel, sweeeet, rum. Good indeed but 500ml is bit too much for one person.

From a bottle brewed in 2008. Pours a deep mahogany with zero head. Aroma of caramel. Flavors of plums, raisins, candi sugar, and caramel. Complex and delicious.
